First of all I'll start by saying that "In Too Deep" is a watered down version of "Deep Cover", but that's not really a bad thing.
The movie looks, sounds and is acted in a very well put together way. The characters are even memorable, even LL COOL J's "God", is really effective. He's a family man, but a notorious and mean gangster all at once.
The look at what going undercover can do to one's mental well being is a really sharp and involving look. Stanley Tucci, excellent, Nia Long, let her have her own movie,PLEASE!!, Omar Epps as "J. Reid", very impressive. And look for Pam Grier, NAS, and a few others.
A really good African American crime thriller, with heart.
